My wife had been asking for a saltwater fish/reef tank for several years but I kept putting it off because it all seemed rather complicated. Then, a little over a year ago, I found myself without any birthday ideas for her and decided to take the plunge. In addition to making her happy, I figured this would entertain my 3 small children as well. So, with little more than a vague idea of what I wanted to do, I walked into Eddie??s Aquarium on Route 9 in Cohoes and started looking around. I found the store to be large, clean, and well stocked, and the staff to be friendly and very knowledgeable. Ed, Gina and Laura in particular have been exceptionally helpful in getting me up to speed on all aspects of the hobby. Whether you want to get a small starter tank or set up a large highly sophisticated reef system, they will have all of the information and supplies you might need. I find it thoroughly addicting ?? especially the coral reef aspects. My kids also love going to the store with me ?? it??s less like going to a store than it is going to an aquarium. So, if you have a saltwater tank, plan on getting one, or just want to stare at their beautiful display tanks, make sure to visit Eddie??s. You will not regret it.

Pros: Friendly, knowledgeable staff; huge selection

Cons: Reef tanks are habit forming.

I was given my first tank as a gift a year ago and didn't know the first thing about the hobby so I visited all of the local shops for information and to decide where the best livestock could be found. I also have a PhD in environmental biology so I know when someone doesn't know what they are talking about when it comes to water chemistry and natural systems. Bottom line is that hands down the staff at Eddie's are the best. They won't sell you a fish or coral that doesn't belong in your system and they explain to you why. And that review about the filter system being one large common system is totally bogus, Matt or Gina will be happy to explain their system and their husbandry practices to ensure you get the healthiest livestock available in the area. Go see them!

this store is very clean and the animals healthy. the staff consist of seasoned hobbyist and some young learners. The selection consist of freshwater fish, saltwater fish, reef and garden pond. When the staff person couldn't answer my question a senior staffer came on the scene and gave some very use full information. Prices are competitive. Large display area, nice ambiance.

Pros: great store and quality of fish very clean tanks

Cons: waitng line

Eddie's has a large, beautiful location with many choices available. They also have some of the best water garden selections in the area. The store always looks clean and neat. However, the staff seems to be poorly trained in both aquarium knowledge and customer service. They seem more eager to make money than make sure a customer is getting what's right for their setup. Also, ever since they moved, their fish have been on a central filtration system, so disease is pretty rampant.

My suggestion is that potential customers should do their homework before making a purchase from Eddie's. Research the fish, and learn the signs of illness. Set up a hospital tank too.
